Worse tasting protein drink I've ever had, Chocolate. Very powderery and has a bad chemical aftertaste to it. Used more and less water than advised but tastes the same. I usually use a product for 12-16 week for best results but I won't be able to finish this bag off -2 weeks in wont be buying this product again. Miles better tasting post recover supps such as CNP PRO RECOVER, will be reverting back to that.

Excellent post work out recovery formula that gives impressive gains. I'm training for triathlon but still putting on muscle doing plyometric and body weight workouts, not pushing heavy weights. Tastes great (chocolate smooth), mixes well and is excellent value given the complex content. Definitely helps me train harder. Highly recommended.

Was looking for something that would help me recover from my long runs. I chose this as it stated it had lots of products contained within the drink that would help muscles recover quickly. Tried the drink with water as suggested, but was unable to stomach it. Left me feeling very sick due to the over sweet taste from the sweeteners. It also left a powdery consistency even when shaken. I'm just about able to stomach it with milk (taste improved), although not something I would by again. Also quite filling if consumed before a meal.

I have never used any shakes or powders before but thought I would give it ago as I found my recovery time is quite slow. I will admit I was quite skeptical if it would really make any difference but found it has really helped towards my recovery time and would definitely recommend. I was worried about the taste and texture as there were some mixed reviews on it however I found that it wasn't too bad a little bit powdery but other than that fine. Would be good if there was some more flavor choices though as it it is rather limited. Overall a very good product and would recommend to anyone who struggles with post workout soreness.

Only used twice so far however mixed it up has a great frothy texture a little bit of a synthetic first taste but has a great after taste! As far as it goes as a recovery formula it seems to do the trick and combined with a good foam rolling at the end of a run muscles feel good and refreshed the next day!

The smooth chocolate tastes GREAT!!....with milk, do yourselves a favour and avoid mixing with water if you can..BURGH. mixes pretty well in a smart shaker, does have a very slight chalky texture, again more so with water. I've only used recovery xs a few times so far but as some one who plays 2 sports and has 2 pt sessions a week as well as a boot camp session it really helps my recovery for the next days training and has helped stave off the dreaded DOMS

I switched to MyProtein from Optimum Nutrition a while back and have always been really pleased with the products - the taste, the quality and the value. Having had a varied mix of products and flavours I thought I was safe ordering this in Chocolate Mint - how wrong could I have been! The Mint is SO STRONG it was burning my throat on the way down! Stupidy (and partly because I've been pleased with everything else I've had from MyProtein) I've ordered a 5kg pouch and am now dreading having to choke it down after every workout for a fair while... Mix is ok - a little bit gritty but no where near the worst I've ever had. Results remain to be seen as I've only just started using Recovery XS instead of simply having Impact Whey after a workout (but I've never had issues with the effectiveness of the products before so not expecting any issues). It's just the MINT!!

Goes Well With:

Water or milk. Just LOTS of either to dilute the flavour as much as possible!

This product will take some getting used to, it doesn't taste very good, and it doesn't blend very well. (I use water, might try milk, see if it's any better) On the other hand, the results are pretty good, and that's all I care about :) So I'll be buying it again.

Ordered this recovery product in the Strawberry Cream flavour for use in marathon training. I found that it mixes very badly with water and has a very chalky taste and flavour. very heavy on the stomach and hasn't done any favours for gas problems. Doesn't seem to have any different effectiveness for recovery and muscle soreness than any other brand I have tried

Great for combatting those next day aches and pains, one serving directly following a 10k run has been enough to drastically reduce DOMS. Only negative point would be that with the Choc Mint flavour the mint has an overpowering chemically taste that can be quite hard to stomach straight after a hard session, loads of other flavours are available though.

Goes Well With:

Milk and a banana in the blender.

This is the perfect stuff for a serious training regime. If you train most days then this helps to get you ready for the next day. My son has just completed the Devises to Westminster canoe marathon and we gave it to him and his partner every evening as soon as they got out of the water after paddling for 35 miles. Of course they were fatigued but they both agreed that the Recovery XS helped enourmously!

I've been using MyProtein products for about 4 years now, mainly the Impact Whey, but have struggled putting on size so decided to go for the Recovery XS along with the Whey Protein. I got the Chocolate Mint flavour and I can honestly say it was awful. With other bad tasting protein powders you can generally still force it down, but this stuff is simply unbearable. Even the smell is pretty bad!

As always with the myprotein suppliments it was supprisingly tastey, however I had alot of trouble trying to mix the powder into the milk/water. As I start to shake the mixer so much foam is produced it stops mixing properly. The foam takes a very long time to disapear and when I drink it I get a gritty sandy feel in my mouth. It does seem to improve my muscle ache the next day though.

Good filling shake after a workout. Having a few hours on the wattbike neds some decent calories after so its good for that. The taste of Chocolate Smooth isn't great - have with water to keep absorption quickest and the taste is a tad bland (although some will appreciate that as its not super-sweet) and it has a powdery feel to it. Not a great explanation but there's something not sweet about it. I also have it with Milk for breakfast and its pretty good. Thicker, slower absorbing and it tastes better too - more akin to Nesquik Chocolate Milkshake.

I am a semi pro footballer and use this for after football matches and training to get my nutrients back in my body and to help stop stiffness. I tried mint choc before with both water and milk and found it too strong and hard to stomache. This time I went for smooth choc and found the flavour much better and and quite tastey. I've only tried mixing it with water but mixes fine, would defo recommend the smooth choc.

This is a great shake! I train 8 times a week, mixture of land and pool training for rugby and waterpolo at university. Straight after a tough session, get this stuff into the system. It definitely promotes recovery, allowing you to train hard every time. Great shake but does have a slightly powdery taste and the strawberry cream flavour takes some getting used to. It tastes better the more frequently you have it, and mixes much better with semi-skimmed milk than water. Great product, recommended!

This is the 1st ever protein shake I have ever tried. I felt after going the gym I was tired and ached the day after. I am eating as healthy as I can. I felt I wasn't putting enough into my body and taking to much out. I have hit abit of a wall where I wasn't seeing much change if any. I bought a pack of this (strawberries and cream) amazing taste. Mixes really well. Tastes nice with water or milk. The small bag has lasted me over a month. After a work out I have more energy, don't ache the day after and I feel I can push that little bit more. Great product. Just bought some hurricane xs so will be good to see if that makes any difference. Thanks my protein.

Tried this product as I play a lot of football and I think the product is very good! It helps reduce DOMS after football and especially the day after. Muscle soreness is reduced massively, however I tried the mint chocolate and the mint is far too strong and I've found it hard to stomach. I've only tried it with water ATM but it does mix very well!

I tried shakes a couple of years ago and they were just awful, the texture, the mix and the taste put me off for a long long time. Recently I got back into fitness and really struggled with the recovery in my legs which meant I struggled to train day after day. a friend recommended this product to me and I ordered it as an impulse buy but it then sat in my kitchen for a good 2 months (yes really, the old shakes really put me off) before I finally took the plunge as I needed to get fit for my wedding. I have to say I was pleasently suprised, I had the chocolate one and it smells and tastes like chocolate. It doesnt taste as nice as a mcdonalds milkshake so dont expect it to be a tast revoloution but it is enjoyable and after a few days you get used to the taste and they go down very easily. My legs now recover in just a few hours meaning I am able to jump on my push bike everyday without any stiffness or aces. Take it form someone who has always been very sceptical shakes that this one works !
